Published by Laura Pratt at 2:18pm 12th February 2019

Lancashire County Council have named one of their gritters after TV presenter Holly Willoughby - after she complained on This Morning that she didn't have one.

Her co-star Phillip Schofield had one named after him last month - 'Phillip Snowfield'.

But now - 'Holly Chilloughby' is heading to the streets of Lancashire.

Holly's mentioned it on This Morning - saying she's really touched.

She said;

 "Thank you, I feel very, very honoured. And if you see my gritter around the country, do take a photo."

So if you see Holly Chilloughby on your street - make sure to send her a pic!
